One pager summary for a proposed one-shot #InvestmentClub to aggregate funds and make a loan to the #KeepBTLocal #coop through which we're attempting to divert a utility #privatization into #mutualization in #btv!

@clacke @xj9 Twister is super noce but it suffers from the same problem that blockchain-based systems have: massive database growing bogger all the time. Eventually you sto it in a web server, centralise it, and distribute chunks of the bloclchain over http, defearing the whole purpose of distribution.
Reminder that social.coop has a Matrix chat channel as well. Using the Riot web interface, it's kind of like Slack, but open source :).
Or kind of like IRC, but you don't have to set up your own bouncer to keep logs for when you're away, and the web interface is nicer.

The w3c is just another corporate cartel. Think critically about patent encumbered "open" standards and resist the development of the corporate web. A new web for the people is needed. https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2017/09/open-letter-w3c-director-ceo-team-and-membership
*HTTP is obsolete. It's time for the distributed, permanent web*
"#IPFS is a distributed file system that seeks to connect all computing devices with the same system of files. In some ways, this is similar to the original aims of the Web, but IPFS is actually more similar to a single bittorrent swarm exchanging git objects. IPFS could become a new major subsystem of the internet. If built right, it could complement or replace #HTTP. It could complement or replace eve…""
@xj9 I know that IPFS is not ideal, and the existing implementations are a bit toy-ish for now. but it's important that they are moving fast in the right direction, not wandering aimlessly, and they're not ridden with a history of "file sharing" like BT(which is lovely by me, but the brand already stands for something in the minds of millions).
Clean slate, clean room implemention of IPFS made GNU would be pretty neat in my view.
